Never understood the attraction. But my ancestors didn't "run" moonshine back in the day, either.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Kyle Busch will miss the Daytona 500 after suffering a broken right leg and left foot following a hard crash into an interior concrete wall during an Xfinity Series race Saturday at Daytona International Speedway.

Kyle Busch was stretchered off after his car slammed into an infield concrete wall during the Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway.

Busch needed assistance getting out of his car after it slammed into a wall that did not have an energy-absorbing steel-and-foam energy reduction (SAFER) barrier. His right leg was placed in an air cast before he was transported by ambulance to nearby Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach, where he underwent surgery Saturday night for a compound fracture of the leg. He also suffered a midfoot fracture in his left foot.

The team reported late Saturday night the surgery was successful and that Busch would remain hospitalized for observation.

Busch's wife, Samantha, offered an update on Twitter early Sunday morning: "In the recovery room with Kyle he's alert n chatting. Surgery went well. We thank you all for the support, prayers and love during this time."...

ImageAfter the agony of defeat, success will be sweet!
